Overview

This volume focuses on the structural aspects of cell division, rangin g from nuclear envelope breakdown to cytokinesis and partitioning of t he cytoplasm. It examines spindle assembly and chromosome behavior in mitosis and meiosis, centromere and kinetochore structure and regulati on, telomeres, the role of centrosomes, and mechanisms by which overal l regulation is achieved. Written as a companion volume to Cell Cycle Control, this book provides an up-to-date account of developments in t his exciting area of cell biology.
